would be the united states economy and the potentially disastrous impact of failing to raise the debt ceiling brsh according to speaker boehner, the ends justify the means. in a statement yesterday, boehner asserted the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real, but so, too, are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. it was a response to this stern warning from the president on monday. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well being of the american people is not leveraged to be used. >> if the tenor of the president's last press conference of his first term is any indication about what he expects in his second term, prepare for a bond-style showdown as the government barrels towards its borrowing limit. that said, there might exist a solution that would allow congress to do what it does best, which is to say nothing at all, and still save the economy. this do nothing approach was floated by senate minority leader mitch mcconnell in 2011, and president obama gave it a hat tip
for not crashing the american economy. >> the president rejected calls from senate democrats to use some form of an 11th hour executive action. whether it is the 14th amendment, minting a coin, whatever, to side step congress and raise the debt limit unilaterally. >> are you considering a plan b? and if not -- >> well, chuck, the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a deadbeat nation. there are no magic tricks here. there are no loopholes. >> to explain the thinking of the white house and why no plan b is this. the president believes its republicans who should own all of the political uncertainty on any default debt crisis. and he wants to avoid handing the gop a get-out-of-jail card. the white house believes if they help republicans come up with a temporary fix, like going around them find something other way, democrats share in some of the political chaos that would ensue. the president pressed his point by rattling off constituency groups that will feel the pain if treasury can no longer pay its bills. >> if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills

"the financial times." china's economic growth has hit its slowest rate in 13 years. still the country's gdp grew by 7.8%. economists say it could have been worse. they note amid concerns of a slowdown, china's government has spurred heavy investment in inf infrastructure. >> "usa today." congress, inexperienced. 40% of lawmakers in the house have fewer than three years' experience. the lowest number since at least 1995. as a result, new members are often receiving committee as
question at the top, economy in general at 21%, goes down to the federal budget deficit, dissatisfaction with government, unemployment, taxes, all the way at the bottom is gun. >> the web video which targets basically the president's children, who have secret service protection, as all children of presidents. over the line? >> based on this poll, he should have been apologizing for those children to breaking their piggy banks to pay for the national debt. that's what americans are concerned about. >> i'm asking you about the web video. >> because his children -- >> which children? >> children he had there on display, because his children, his own children, are well protected. joe biden opened up by saying that schools should be a sanctuary. well, he must have this confused, because the president's girls do go to a sanctuary, well-armed there, but most american kids are not protected at all. >> you don't think the president's children should be off limits? >> i think she should be protected and i think our children should be. i have seven school-aged children. i would hope and pray there
at the republican actions just recently since obama was re-elected. they pushed the economy to the edge of the fiscal cliff and they threatened to make the u.s. go into default or shut down the government if they don't get policy concessions. they fiercely oppose potential picks for obama's cabinet from susan rice, of course, to people who withdrew to people who had strong gop support up until they were affiliated with president obama like chuck hagel and jack lew and republicans delayed 85% of the planned relief funding for hurricane sandy. that, of course, drew a strong rebuke from republican governor chris christie. this is not politics devoted to a competing vision. this is politics devoted to digs corruption and obstruction, and those recent fights i mentioned don't even include the explosion of minority obstruction in the u.s. senate. the filibuster has been used against more of obama's legislation than any president in history. the bottom line is that the gop is exploiting what i think is a hole in our democracy. can you lose elections and still get your way now if you don't care
